Just hiked the first 13 miles of the trail today (6/2/07). Very hot and humid, but a nice trail. You find yourself on public paved roads about 1/3 of the time, which isn't as much fun as the wooded areas. There are many beautiful homes along the trail and there are some nice views if you take the time to look at them. Not many areas to camp in the first stretch if you are doing a multi-day hike. Only a few water sources if you choose to go that route for purifying
your own water supply. Overall a nice trip, better for simple day trips. Says Mike K.
